Fillers for revolumizing the skin around the eye
Loss of volume and shrinking of bones, leading to changes in facial shape and structure, are phenomena which occur naturally during the aging process, with less collagen and elastin production. The hardest hit areas are around the eyes, nose and mouth.
Presently, there are safe and effective solutions for facial volume loss through dermal fillers. They can provide structure and lift to the face, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, bringing the youthful appearance back by revolumizing the skin.
Dermal fillers are FDA– Approved and administered under strictly controlled conditions by qualified physicians. They are injected into the skin to make the skin look refreshed and youthful. Some of the most commonly used fillers are:
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA) – These fillers are safe to use almost anywhere on the face – cheeks, temples, jawline, tear troughs and under the eyes, nasolabial folds and lips. HA promotes the creation of collagen and the results are immediate. Reduction of dark circles under the eyes and the sunken look is a major benefit.
- Calcium hydroxyapatite – Found in bone, this is the ideal filler to rebuild underlying structure such as in temples, cheeks and jawline.
- Poly-L-lactic acid – This promotes the body to produce its own natural collagen and results are visible after several sessions after six months. It’s effective for facial volume loss, and reduction of wrinkles at the center of the chest.
